I’m no hoarder, but I have a hard time throwing things away – especially makeup. I’m not exactly sure why, but it’s probably because of weird emotional memories tied to the items. Oh, I wore this polish to Sasquatch Music Festival last year. This was my very first black eyeliner!
Despite those concerns, I decided to do a full spring cleaning of all my makeup. As you can see, I had a lot of gloopy nail polish from 2008 … seriously! But it was time to let go of those, along with some dried-out liquid liner and a CoverGirl concealer that was a little too pink for my skin tone.
Take time out to go through your stash and let go of makeup that’s too old, the wrong color, or a poor formula. It’s a very simple beauty resolution that’ll open up more room for those holy grail items you’ll want to use every day.
